Analyst Names Brightspace as the Top Learning Management System

Kitchener, Waterloo, Feb. 06, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Global learning technology leader D2L has been recognized by prominent industry analyst Craig Weiss. Weiss is the founder of Findanlms.com, and writes the E-Learning 24/7 blog, which is read in more than 170 countries and territories around the world.

As a former executive of a global trade organization, Weiss understands the unique challenges of providing a learning platform for associations.

“To be a top-tier system in the association market, you need e-commerce – robust preferably (which Brightspace offers), multi-tenant (yes), a wealth of feature sets that are ideal for the association space (which they do), top tier content marketplace (a nice plus for members, who receive the LMS as part of the membership), ability to assign CEU/CPD to any piece of content and then capture that data is a win,” Weiss wrote.

Brightspace was also selected as the #8 overall platform out of the learning management systems reviewed for serving corporate clients. Weiss highlighted strengths including its UI/UX, administrations features, learner environment and content creation and curation capabilities. 

“We know how well read and regarded Craig Weiss is in the learning management community. It’s great for D2L’s Brightspace to be recognized on both his Top Learning Systems for 2020 lists,” said John Baker, President and CEO of D2L. “From day one, our team has focused on putting learners first and working in partnership with our customers to provide the best learning solutions.
